of multi-bedroom units that are not being occupied by families. any of us with young adult children know that they're living 3 or 4 to a unit in san francisco to make it affordable. but they're taking units out of supply for families because there's 3 or 4 unrelated adults living in an apartment. if we can move some of that into units like this and if this experiment works and they are attractive and people will occupy them, i think that will reduce some of the burden we have on existing multi-family homes and new multi-family apartments, multi-unit, multi-bedroom apartments. that will be developed in the future. so, it is an experiment worth pursuing and we urge the board to adopt it. and i would also like to congratulate supervisor mar on a tremendous victory in his reelection. >> thank you. >>> i, too, would like to thank and congratulate supervisor mar. and i would like to thank supervisor wiener for working on this kind of legislation. the biggest concerns that were expressed in cfsf land use committee were about family housing, that maybe this would free up family housing because a
is toast. if they cannot figure out how in the most multicultural, multiracial, and multi-ethnic americans to play to a broader base, but how do they go about doing that? >> it is a different world but to say someone is toast, in 1964, lyndon johnson annihilated barry goldwater. and the theme was the republican party is dead. they have gone too far right, they had four years later, richard nixon who had been defeated in the governorship of california two years prior. nothing is forever. ever say never. nothing is toast. anyone can come back. a guy could come by in a white horse and there could be a new candidate emerging. it is too soon to tell. i would not put them into toast. do they have to come -- they have to find someone. we are very people oriented, not party oriented. obama was like. one of these that helped obama is people like him. that is a lot going for you if you can be like. they did not know romney and i do not think romney ever sold himself well enough to make that leap. rubio may be a tremendous canada. if he has charisma and he can swing through primaries, anything can ha
to balboa park station. we are bringing this item. it's a multi-part presentation with participation of my counter parts at bart and mta. we know there is high interest in the community and on the part of commissioners in improving balboa park station. the timing is also good. the authority approved funding from prop k and the life line transportation program and other sources for improving balboa park station. this is a chance to see how the improvements are advancing and also there are upcoming funding decisions including most immediately an application for the one bay area grant program. as i mentioned this is a multi-part presentation. i will start by providing background and context and then i will ask my counter parts to come up and talk about their projects. >> before you start let me just i was going to add some comments to begin with and i had a water spill on me and i cleaned it up and now i'm ready to go. thank you. i really appreciate this item coming forward. i have talked a lot about balboa park station and we need great investments to go there. i see the station as f
as well as some incentives and wastewater flow factors, low impact design. everything in multi-lingual youtube style messaging to make sure folks understand and have accessibility to monthly bill affordability and conservation programs to make sure they can manage their bill as effectively as possible. so, really, really helpful comments. and what i found is that in all three cases, in particular for the cac, they gave us helpful comments that we cannot only use in rate payer assurance, but we can use in the rate policy and the technology policy, and the community benefits policy. so, here it's kind of a long list. i'm sorry about that. but i wanted you to know all the stuff that they shared even though it doesn't necessarily 100% apply to just assurances. revenue bond oversight is the next. it's a shorter list. pursue any potential rate payer benefits from california's cap and trade program and carbon and greenhouse gas mitigations. you recently had an item already looking at budgetary impacts of that. pursue potential and further natural resource asset valuations. we are work
land use plan was adopted, the first waterfront land use plan for the port after a multi-year process. community planning process to develop -- to determine what the uses would be for that property, what kinds of uses would be acceptable and unacceptable for that 7-1/2 miles of waterfront property that we own and manage on behalf of the state. the main thrust of that waterfront land use plan was determining what the port priority uses would be, specifically in the maritime uses for the various subareas. there are five subareas within the waterfront land use plan. it also focused on park and open space systems as well as creating mixed use development, opportunity areas for each of the five -- each of the five subareas. i should mention again one of the primary thrust of the waterfront land use plan was reconnecting san francisco with its waterfront. when that plan was adopted, working with city family, the city's general plan and planning code were amended so that the policies including design review process within the plan were in keeping with the waterfront plan. as you know, the ba
pricing it, we're a multi-, multi-, multi-million dollar over budget. >> the story a lot of people don't know after we got select today do this project, the first price we came in with was $180 million. and the city said, you know, this is a great building, but we just don't want to spend that much money. so, the project was on the verge of being canceled. >> if you're looking at why this building came to be, in many ways it also included mayor gavin newsome, particularly, who really had an affection for this building. he saw the design. he saw the potential. he wanted to make sure that that building got built. and he said, do what you need to do, but please, if you can make that building work, we need to have that building in civic center. >> i happened to be at a green conference santa clara. he said you shouldn't cancel that project. can you work with us? michael cohen phoned me up the next day. can we cut $40 million out of this project? it was one person more responsible than any others, it's tony irons, was the architect that was responsible for the revitalization of city hall w
an application for the one bay area grant program. as i mentioned this is a multi-part presentation. i will start by providing background and context and then i will ask my counter parts to come up and talk about their projects. >> before you start let me just i was going to add some comments to begin with and i had a water spill on me and i cleaned it up and now i'm ready to go. thank you. i really appreciate this item coming forward. i have talked a lot about balboa park station and we need great investments to go there. i see the station as full of amazing resources from cal trans to bart to muni. we have bike access, a lot of pedestrian access. a lot of it doesn't work well. it's constrained environment. the infrastructure is out dated and not much improved since the original design and structure of it as things were built. there were incremental changes recently and conflict at the site between the transit and transportation modes. i see one of the basic conflicts there. there is a sense that this site is maintenance yard, maintenance facility for muni as well as a place
do with policy deliberations is multi-year ten-year cap plans, multi-year sewer system rebuild plans. so, we'd be mindful of that multi-year rate planning as well. clearly those years where salary costs go down because of labor concessions and helpfulness in a bad economy. >> i think within the typesful things that rates pay for, the easiest to explain are bond issues. especially if it's a bond issue like the bond that were approved by the voters, you asked us to do it, you gave them monies, we promised to repay the loans that we have taken out. that's why your rate went up by this amount. that's very ease toy explain. it buys you seismic safety and reliability. that is an easy explanation to give. the hardest one to give is within operating. operating funds, so many things, some big, some small, that is just hard to explain it. now, if we start from a position that we want to keep things as loud as we can and provide explanations as to the forces, if any, that drive you above that, then i think that goes a long wail to completing an understandable story as to why rates have to be wh
and we were able to start pricing it, we're a multi-, multi-, multi-million dollar over budget. >> the story a lot of people don't know after we got select today do this project, the first price we came in with was $180 million. and the city said, you know, this is a great building, but we just don't want to spend that much money. so, the project was on the verge of being canceled. >> if you're looking at why this building came to be, in many ways it also included mayor gavin newsome, particularly, who really had an affection for this building. he saw the design. he saw the potential. he wanted to make sure that that building got built. and he said, do what you need to do, but please, if you can

high- in, so manye live our governments missions require multi durst sectional cooperation. multi-jurisdictional cooperation. newsst have been welcome canadian government has to dramatically increase in privateing security. the canadian government will one than double spending against cyber attacks. no doubt this increase is in to the country's report saying that in paces not keeping with cyber threats. despite the heavy investment may years,the past 10 not adequately prepared over the past 10 years, not adequately prepared december attack. cyber crimes cannot respect geographical boundaries. it is good news that canada will taking action to protect networks and, by extension, hours. networks and, by extensio[ earnest ] out of thf blue one day, we were told to build a 30-foot stage. gathered the guys and we built that 30-foot stage, not knowing what it was for. just dayays later, althree shifts were told to assemble in the warehouse. a group of people walked out on that stage and told us that the plant is now closed and all of you a are fired... i lookedoth ways, i looked at the c
. but it shows a multi-year trend and summarizes in one page if we wanted to see what the status and health and cleanliness of streets and sidewalks would be. these are both independent score cards, report cards that the controller's office is doing, the city services auditor the board asked them to do. taking that same theme, the city services advisory of the sfpuc thought we might want to consider that as a way to synthesize and distill it into a report card to rate payers on how we're doing. so, what i've done here is purely an example, but it is rap based upon the rubric that the water environment foundation and also the american water works association says are the 10 attributes for an effective utility management function. and a number of these attributes you'll see look very familiar to what you have as strategic sustainability goals as well as your items to the bottom line policies and other. so, what could be the possibility in next step is to perfect this report card style. and you see a column for each one and whether we have a path that needs improvement, that would be a one-pag
and the multi-purpose facility that connects to a retail venue which is along the embarcadaro proper. and we'll talk more about that retail structure in a moment. then across the street is a seawall site which has currently a low level podium, basically in the range of the podiums that exist today. and then some more dense structures slightly taller or taller atop that podium. and we'll address that again in just a moment. one of the views of the site from the distance shows how the arena and the multi-purpose venue itself will reach out into the water and create an interesting focal point along this portion of the waterfront that is essentially today an open space in between giants stadium and the financial district and the bay bridge itself. one of the other views, studies that we did was simply from public spaces. so, this is a view from an area that is essentially where main street reaches down to bryant street. today that's a lesser known street. but in the future when transbay terminal is built, one will imagine that street will be more pedestrianized than it is today. and also we'll s

funding is being allocated to the city to accelerate approximately 450 businesses and multi-family projects totaling about 3 million megawatts in savings. the savings of the 450 projects is significant just to give you an example of what 3 megawatts of savings equivalent to running 3,000 san francisco homes for a year. so these 450 projects are important. a few examples of the project certainly include familiar places at&t park and the fresh fish market at geneva is one of our projects. pacific supermarket on 2900 almaine is a project. the catholic charities building on 1948 ocean is a project. we have some large projects like the palace hotel. we just heard tenderloin housing clinic is one of our other projects and conrad house is a project. the examples of the type of work are really very individual to each site, but a lot of it is for commercial office laguardias, commercial overhead lighting and a lot of it is changing their lighting for a new led project. in addition, there is lots of several kind of therm projects or natural gas projects that are included. in this n
much for your information. moving on to our next item, no. 11, sfmta multi modal accessibility advisory committee update. presentation by mdc council member roland wong. >> thank you very much. i will start off, san francisco has one of the longest standing committees to advise san francisco metropolitan transportation agency. the sfmta maac multi modal accessibility advisory committee, a 21-member strong voice of seniors and people with disabilities. a few projects we have accomplished is the big project like st. francis circle, like when they have, we've done the rails and made the pathways, way finding ramps, everything much more accessible. like minor enhancements like a (inaudible) station by installing automatic push button for better access to the station. we're working in progress weigh in concerns with bikes and pedestrian safety. another thing that we are trying to work on is better access to bart and access busses. many busses are blocked by vehicles that interfere, a path in order to enter or exit a bus like the 1846 avenue and 31 balboa bus line. there are many muni
my pieces and hand off to my counter parts. as the chair mentioned there are complex multi-interactions here. there have been efforts to improve the conditions via multiple studies that the agencies have been involved in. some improvement ideas emerged from those studies and are under way or construction but there are more to come and there are funding decisions on those potential improvements, so just a quick update on some of the work that is being completed already. about a year ago the west side walk way was open and on the image to the right. that project was sorely needed and allows pedestrians to access the station from points north and west to get to the bart part of the station. the remaining item there is get those pedestrians to the muni light rail boarding areas and there is a project actually under way to make that final connection that bart will be talking about in just a bit. there has been a new crosswalk installed at the intersection of the 280 northbound on ramp and ocean avenue to help pedestrians access the station from points north and to the west.
a vinyl floor there, multi-purpose and delaminating and uplifting because of water intrusion problems that happened over the years and the project would fix the floor and problems in the foundation and reinstall a new vinyl multi-purpose floor in the gym. this proposed probeject about $145,000 out to bid for the administrative code requirement. i will point out that per our pavilion project last year we won't know the scope of that project until we pull the floor up. i will say over the last several years our yard has under taken water correction intrusion on the walls and the gutters and the floor is uplifting so that just leaves the foundation and we're looking if you approve this pull the floor up, identify the last areas maybe, fix those and put down a floor that has playablity for the future. the total props
that is reflective of our multi-culturalism. and, therefore, this specific $650,000 grant is really to fulfill a huge gap that we had when we are looking at immigrant families. we're looking at particularly latino and asian families, but immigrant families who, for many years, we knew that we were not getting the right level of reports, the right level of services because of the cultural gaps here. so, this is targeted and aimed at that gap. and it is, i think, very telling that we have our immigrant families stepping up and feeling confident in this city that they can work with all the community agencies that are involved here, and really try to help us end domestic violence because that's the goal of all these agencies. it isn't really to tolerate or just provide a service. it really is to end domestic violence. and that's been the goal of this city. and that's why we work so hard. george and our office. it is part of my new program as well, the interrupt, the predictive policing, the interrupting the patterns. the most important part of that is community organizing, dee anna and my office is doing
